Nine Players Honored
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale men's soccer team gathered one final time at the Schley Room inside Ingalls Rink for the post season banquet to celebrate the season, honor the seniors and hand out the team awards. Nine players were recognized for their contributions this season.
The Jack Marshall Award for team spirit, loyalty and dedication to the game was presented to senior Theo Miller and junior Kyle Kenagy. Miller was a key part of a Yale defense that posted six shutouts, while Kenagy earned second team All-Ivy recognition after tying for the team lead with seven points and three assists.
Junior Cameron Riach and sophomores Andrew Bortey and Miguel Yuste shared the Frank Dunne Most Improved Player Award. Riach, who scored two goals and was a key defender, and Yuste, one of the team's top scoring threats, were both honorable mention All-Ivy selections. Bortey played the final three games in goal and had two shutouts – in a scoreless tie with Brown and a 1-0 win over Princeton in the season-finale.
Totte also was the recipient of Walter J. McNerney Award as the team's most valuable player. He appeared in 15 games, including making 14 starts, and contributed two assists. Totte played 1,116 minutes during the season and was a major contributor to the team's success.
Yale ended the season in a tie for third place in the Ivy League, its highest finish since the 2005 Ivy championship.
The Bulldogs, who outshot each of their seven Ivy League opponents, also had their most overall wins since 2011.
